Safety

Your child's safety is our number one concern. Safety rules in all aspects of horse handling and riding are stressed at all times. Our program directors must have the full attention of each camper while they are at Red Gate without the distraction of well meaning adults and parents.

Helmets and Boots with Heels are Required.

A staff person fully certified in First Aid and CPR is always on the premises.

For your child's safety helmets that meet ASTM standards and are SEI certified riding helmets are recommended . These helmets are specially designed for riding and cover far more area on a child's head than a regular helmet. Once you are enrolled, feel free to contact Jamie; she has COUPONS for reduced prices on riding helmets!

Should you have any concerns about your child's safety please feel free to contact Jamie or speak with any of the camp directors.

Since Red Gate Farm is a learn-by-doing camp, we do things no matter what the weather is doing! Be sure to wear clothes that can get dirty and will not hold you back from participating in the fun.

We ride every day regardless of the weather. If rain is in the forecast be sure to bring a raincoat and gloves. Each camper will be assigned a cubby hole for their gear.

Approved riding helmets provide the very best protection. For your child's safety please supply him/her with ASTM/SEI approved protective headgear. (If you send a bicycle helmet, a helmet waiver must be signed) Riding helmets may be purchased at any local horse supply store such as Olson Mills in Bellevue, The Gift Horse in Woodinville, The Grange in Issaquah or among others.
